Created with a Roland System-1 synthesizer, Jupiter-8, and a Korg wavedrum.

Japanese artist Koss, aka Kuniyuki Takahashi, is releasing his 2008 album Ancient Rain on vinyl for the first time, via Mule Musiq this March.

The album’s nine tracks bring together wistful ambient with harp, piano, layered electronics, and relaxed house.

Takahashi composed Ancient Rain using equipment including a Roland System-1 synthesizer, Jupiter-8, and a Korg wavedrum.

Ancient Rain was originally released on CD only during 2008, on Mule Electronic Distribution.

It follows Mule Musiq’s release of Takahashi’s Feather World album — one of our favourite records from January.
